Supporting our farmers
At The a2 Milk Company we value farmers and are committed to supporting our a2 MilkTM farming community.
The a2 Milk Company has struck a new agreement with Kyvalley Dairy Group, expanding our long-standing supply and processing alliance to include acquisition of Kyvalley Dairy’s milk processing facilities in Kyabram, Victoria, and funding for the expansion and upgrade of those facilities.
The new investment by The a2 Milk Company is welcomed by the Kyabram community as it will support our local dairy farming families secure long-term supply opportunities, provide long term employment opportunities for the region, and of course help us continue to meet growing demand for our a2 Milk™. The upgrades will commence in 2021.
Since 2018, The a2 Milk Company has made lump sum payments directly to a2 MilkTM farming families to help manage the impact of the drought.
These are some of their stories.
a2 Milk™ and Landcare
Four a2 Milk™ farmers will be awarded funding for projects through the a2 Milk™ Landcare grants program. This will help them respond to challenges and enhance the sustainability of their operations.
The funding will help farmers undertake projects focused on a variety of initiatives, such as increased use of solar power, implementation of technology to reduce energy consumption, revegetation to reduce soil erosion and improve water quality, and the recycling of waste water.
